(July 30, 2013) -- Central Texas will have representation at the 2013 Little League Softball World Series.
Robinson Little League defeated Elgin Little League 14-6 in the Southwest Regional Championship Game on Tuesday, to advance to Portland, Oregon.
Both team came out slugging, scoring a combined 16-runs in the first two innings. Emilie Hoelscher took over on the mound for Texas West in the Top of the 3rd-inning and shut down the Texas East bats to pick up the pitching victory.
The Robinson all-star team has won three straight state championships, as they represented Texas West in this year's Southwest Regional Tournament. They are the second group from Robinson to advance to the regional tourney. A team from Robinson advanced to the Little League World Series in Delaware in 2005.
Robinson will begin play at the World Series on August 9th against the Philippines.
